Glas Trösch Switzerland

When the bicycle manufacturer SCOTT, originally based in the US, expanded to Europe in the early 1990s, it found a suitable location in Western Switzerland. The company has remained loyal to the tranquil town of Givisiez near Fribourg to this day. The employees, who were previously spread over five different locations, now find their workplace in an impressive new building. The headquarters, designed by Itten+Brechbühl Architekten is built for 600 employees and strengthens the globally successful brand with its compelling architectural language. Products from Glas Trösch, which were used in the façade, interiors and roof also contribute to this.

Efficient glass façade with perfect colour matching

In a suburb of Belgrade, a private builder fulfilled his dream of a spacious villa with attractive views of the city. Situated on a hillside property, the detached house designed by the local architecture firm Autorski Atelje Spajic convinces with its transparent building envelope by Glas Trösch.

For the northeast-facing front façade, triple insulating glass with the SILVERSTAR COMBI 70/35 coating was chosen. With an Ug value of only 0.5 W/m²K, the light transmission is an impressive 61 percent. The perfect matching between the railing system and façade glass, which comes in exactly the same colour, deserves special mention. The glazing used more sparingly on the back of the house has been selected to withstand the strong sunlight from the south-west. The SILVERSTAR COMBI Neutral 61/32 coating was used here.
